After all the verbal exchanges, it was agreed that next year's quarterly lunches will be held here at this venue for convenience. Eng Soo sportingly volunteered to co-ordinate, via email, the first event which will be held in Mar 2011.

They arrived at the Chinese Swimming Club enthusiastically, and greetings flowed freely. Yes, Chee Hong wanted the Oxtail, but the rest opted for Salmon.
Too bad - the others couldn't/didn't make it! (For one reason or another.)
Still, a good time was had by all! There was an experiential discourse on Taichi by Suan Juat and a reallife encounter with an ignoramus on accounting procedures by Swee Ming.
Thanks, Philip, for co-ordinating the lunch.
Anything achieved that afternoon? Yes, indeed. Chee Hong agreed to participate in a song item at the coming Peranakan-Indonesia Fellowship at PMC. If you're free and understand Bahasa, come-lah on Sat 6 Nov 2010 to hear him sing, accompanied by a music video prepared by Kian Ann for the occasion.

The ceremony was held at the Lee Choon Guan Concert Hall in ACS Barker Road on 24 Sep 2010 to honour 500 ACS students for excellence in CCA. The video features the ACS school anthem, and a 4th generation ACSian - Sec 1 Ryan Ong being awarded Distinction for Concert Band. Ryan is Kian Ann's grandson.

Here's a photo of Ryan at the drums.

Can't blame them though, we're all septuagenarians!
These thumbnail photos of the attendees at the ACS Class of 1955's 55th Anniversary lunch are put up "for the record". The bigger photos are available to them on request by email.
For easier handling, don't ask for single photos, just say "Block A", "Block B", "Block C" or "Block D" and you'll have them all via email.

The above: Preview of the proposed venue for the function.
The alternative would be at my home with excellent Peranakan Baba-Nonya cuisine cooked by my better half.
But don't book now. It's too early. The last week of August would do fine.
This forward info is just to remind all that I've not forgotten that I've volunteered to do my part although I'll be 73 day after tomorrow.

That's quite a big lump sum, don't you think? Here's what the exchange rate converter has to say:
But I'm not greedy: If one of you can claim the prize money for me, you can keep the $800,000.00, leaving the balance to me. Okay? But do it ASAP as this offer expires on 1 Jul 2010.

Yes, Kenny I know (below):
But is this Eng Chye Choon who promised to attend the 50th Anniversary of ACS Class55 when he returned to London, but disappeared from the scene altogether? Hey, Chye Choon, if you're still active, drop us a line, won't you? You really look good below:

55 years ago in 1955, we were in the Young People's Group (YPG) of Bethesda Katong when this picture was taken before we set out on our hike to Ayer Gemurroh. Notice how cool and relaxed Tian Soo (as he was then called) looked!
And then, 55 years later in Jan 2010 at the Anniversary of the Methodist Church of the Incarnation, see how he (now the Rev Dr George Wan Tian Soo) looked: so distinguished and confident in the presence of the celebrating congregation.
Boyish as this thought may be, but more than 55 years ago when we were kids living in the same neighbournood, it was Tian Soo who invited me to a pond near his house at Rambutan Road, and where with a freshly cut bamboo sapling as my first fishing rod, I hooked my first fish ( an ikan betok or climbing perch) to my childish delight.
Yes, George, you will never be forgotten but will stay in my heart till we meet again. For didn't somebody say: "Those who love the Lord never see one another for the last time"?

George has fought the good fight, he has finished the race, he has kept the faith (2 Tim 4: 6-8) as a disciple of Jesus Christ, and now he goes into His divine presence with freedom and confidence (Eph 3:12). Praise the Lord.

It was a departure from the usual monthly ACSClass55 lunch. First, it's become the 1st Quarterly Lunch. Second, it's hosted at an ACSian home, in this case: Eng Soo's. But well done! It has seen the largest turn-out of date, thirteen to be exact. But it would have been fourteen if LKM had turned up as he said he would. Alamak, KM, where were you?
Photos of the event can be downloaded at http://www.flickr.com/photos/albertong2010.
Third, there was no loss for words.They talked about dementia, potential build-up of mega powers, China's rising profile, Malaysian politics, LTA policies, the IRs and Singapore's future leaders.
Yes, the Mar 5 lunch is something for them to remember.
Thanks to Letty, ES's better half, who prepared the delicious mee-siam and bought the taukuahpau from Joo Chiat and the satay from Laguna Park, and other delicacies, there was more than enough to fill the hungry ACSians!

...That is, until I bumped into him today having a quiet lunch - solo @ IMM.
You know, it's the Rev Dr ACSian55 I'm referring to.
As we exchanged updates, it was clear that he's just completed yet another mission trip.
And no, he won't be attending the coming lunch gathering at Eng Soo's place.
"Just back from Myanmar," he volunteered. And then, "I'm going to Uganda soon. Would you like to join me?"
"No way," I said, "I'm going to be orthopaedically investigated for some degeneration of the neck vertebra resulting in it touching a nerve and sending electrical impulses down my arm, hand and fingers," and so he relented.
Here's a photo of us taken on the spot with my handphone:
If you'd like to go to Uganda for some ten days of mission work, do give our Missionary of Class55 a call, won't you? He'll really appreciate that.

Along with the foto of a monitor lizard (see below: #24), LKM flaunts a picture of himself with a humongous lobster which, he claimed, was his delicious meal at Kingston.
But Eng Soo wants to savour a bit of it.

This fantastic handphone foto of a monitor lizard, caught in the act of feasting on a large fish at SICC, was taken by ACSian55 Keok Meng while golfing there. It must have been more than a metre in length.
So who says Singapore aint got any more wildlife?
And BTW: Where did this big fish come from?
